Steel Town, (the musical) tells the story of the dying days of steel making in Consett and the town’s struggle for survival. All of this is set against a young man’s dream of rock stardom and escape from an industry in decline.
This is a story of laughter and tears, heartache and pride. The show was a great success when it premiered at the Customs House in South Shields – April 2000. It ran again in September at the Consett Empire twenty years on from the closure of the works. Visit the Steel Town website.
